List of FWCF, AWCF, and Master Farrier
The WCF has now registered the Mark 'Master Farrier' and that title may therefore only be used by qualified persons as detailed in the regulations for that Registered Mark. These regulations are summarised below, and an Application Form may be downloaded from this web site.
Applicants must hold either the Associateship (including the AFCL) or Fellowship. Honorary Fellows may not apply, unless holding an AWCF or FWCF by examination.
The Application Form must be signed by two supporters, one of whom must be a Liveryman of The Company. One supporter must hold the FWCF by examination, and the other must be a practising equine veterinary surgeon.
The Application Form includes a clause for removal of the title for inappropriate conduct.
The Freedom of the Company, Certificate, and Silver Medal will be awarded at end of each Court Meeting. Master Farriers will be invited to be a guest to a Lunch or Dinner following the Court Meeting at which the Master presents their Certificate and Silver Medal. There would be a maximum of 6 installed at each Court. For those who wish to take up the offer of the Freedom of the Company, the Fine and first year's Quarterage will be waived.
Lists showing all Master Farriers, those farriers holding the FWCF, and those holding the AWCF are being made available on the WCF website, and these lists can be accessed by clicking on the links below:
Sanctions: If the FRC Disciplinary Committee finds a Master Farrier guilty of any offence under the FRC’s Disciplinary Code, the Master Farrier status may be withdrawn and the right to use the title revoked. The WCF may remove Master Farrier status for bringing WCF into disrepute.
Application priority is as follows:
Members of the Court
Members of the Examinations Board
Members of the Craft Committee
Members of other Company Committees
Non-liverymen, FWCF first, then AWCF.
The Certificate will be signed by the Master, the Chairman of Examinations Board, and the Registrar. The Certificate will be numbered and dated.
The fee is Two Hundred and Fifty Pounds Only (£250.00) to be reviewed annually.
